In this article, we would like to show you how to convert a string to upper case using UPPER() function in the Postgres database from Node.js level.

Node.js - PostgreSQL LOWER()
Data used in the example - HeidiSQL

Note: at the end of this article you can find database preparation SQL queries.

const { Client } = require('pg');

const client = new Client({
    host: '127.0.0.1',
    user: 'my_username',
    database: 'my_database',
    password: 'my_password',
    port: 5432,
});

const fetchUpperCaseNames = async () => {
	const query = `    
            SELECT UPPER("name") AS "Uppercase names" 
            FROM "users";
    `;
    await client.connect();  // creates connection
    try {
        const { rows } = await client.query(query);  // sends query
        return rows;
    } finally {
        await client.end();  // closes connection
    }
};

fetchUpperCaseNames()
    .then(result => console.table(result))
    .catch(error => console.error(error.stack));

Result: 

┌─────────┬─────────────────┐
│ (index) │ Uppercase names │
├─────────┼─────────────────┤
│    0    │     'JOHN'      │
│    1    │     'CHRIS'     │
│    2    │     'KATE'      │
│    3    │    'AILISA'     │
│    4    │   'GWENDOLYN'   │
│    5    │     'SIMON'     │
│    6    │    'TAYLOR'     │
│    7    │    'ANDREW'     │
└─────────┴─────────────────┘

Database preparation

create_tables.sql file:

CREATE TABLE "users" (
	"id" SERIAL,
	"name" VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
	"surname" VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
	"department_id" INTEGER,
   "salary" DECIMAL(15,2) NOT NULL,
	PRIMARY KEY ("id")
);

insert_data.sql file:

INSERT INTO "users"
	( "name", "surname", "department_id", "salary")
VALUES
	('John', 'Stewart', 1, '3512.00'),
	('Chris', 'Brown', 2, '1344.00'),
	('Kate', 'Lewis', 3, '6574.00'),
	('Ailisa', 'Gomez', NULL, '6500.00'),
	('Gwendolyn', 'James', 2, '4200.00'),
	('Simon', 'Cousersllins', 4, '3320.00'),
	('Taylor', 'Martin', 2, '1500.00'),
	('Andrew', 'Thompson', NULL, '2100.00');

Native SQL query (used in the above example):

SELECT UPPER("name") AS "Uppercase names" 
FROM "users";
